Signs You're Overwatering Your Plants

  • May 18, 2023


Are you maintaining a garden or a few houseplants? If you said yes, then the question of overwatering has probably popped up before. Taking care of plants looks easy enough. Plant it in a pot, add soil and water and you should be good to go. Unfortunately, many plants, both inside and outside die because they are overwatered.

Here are some signs to tell if you are overwatering your plants:

1.    Yellow and mushy leaves – Signs that the plant is too wet.

2.    Wilting – The entire plant or tips of the branches look wilted.

3.    Soft brown leaves that fall off – The leaves of the plant cannot handle the amount of water inside.

4.    Rotting roots – If the roots are always wet, they are prone to diseases that cause rotting. At this point, the root cannot support the plant.

5.    Stunted growth – When overwatered, the plant will just stop growing.

6.    Fungus gnats – Indicates that the potting medium is too moist.
